Quote of the day

Mitt Romney on China's moon mission.

I know the Chinese are planning on getting to the moon, they are actually working very hard to get a rocket to the moon, they will get there I'm sure, congratulations, and when they do they will find an American flag that has been there for 43 years.

Mitt Romney taunts China over its efforts to land on the moon.
